Migrating to Microservices By @MattKiernan | @DevOpsSummit #Microservices

Migrating to Microservices with CoreOS & Logentries
By Matt Kiernan

It's no secret that container-based architectures have become an extremely popular choice amongst organizations looking to simplify and automate their deployments. One of the leaders of this movement, along with Docker,  is CoreOS providing teams with the ability to manage their services through neatly packaged Linux containers.

It's always great to move to a new architecture with a new project, but what about existing services hosted within monolithic environments? It turns out it's relatively easy to migrate your services onto CoreOS.


Logentries Chief Scientist Trevor Parsons recently co-hosted a webinar with Kelsey Hightower, Chief Advocate at CoreOS and Scott Rankin, VP of Engineering at Motus to discuss best practices for getting started with micro-services. A variety of topics were covered, including:

  • The advantages of micro-services over monolithic architectures
  • Using Google's Kubernetes API to manage your containerized services
  • Best practices for logging from containers hosted on CoreOS

Missed the webinar? No problem - you can view a video recording of the webinar below and find a list of helpful CoreOS and logging resources here
